Baba Yaga

Hey Everyone! It's been a while since I've posted. This is my piece for the Folklore Monsters Book featuring the Baba Yaga. I've been stressing about it for a few days because I waited till the last minute, but I'm pretty happy with the result.

this is really great! i love how you're using dark and light shapes. the stark white areas are especially nice.

the more i study this, the more infuriating it is that you can tell/say so much with such fluid masterful blended washes. it isn't that there aren't shapes or distinct delineations, but you don't have to cop out like most of us with hard strokes and brash lines that scream "this is a shoulder!" or "here is a stick!" it pretty much shines a light on what you can do that is so extraordinary that few people even attempt let alone do with a degree of success.

a minor point is how you are really messing with, well, maybe, "perception" ? the way the stick (with skull) blends with the trees in the back, the way her white hair shreds and focuses, the way maybe even she moves with the washes in the sky....intentional or no, i think there's a strange world of experimenting with values here

Really looks like Buzzard, a half-undead character from The Goon by Eric Powell
